Nepal Unveils New Map Featuring ‘Extra’ 335 Sq Km Land

Despite the close linguistic, cultural and religious ties between Indians and Nepalis, the border disputes have strained the relations between them.

Lately, on May 20, the Nepali Government has released its revised map featuring Limpiyadhura, Lipulekh and Kalapani, the territories encroached by India. This, in turn, added fuel to the fire.

During a digital press conference on Wednesday, the Nepali Land Reforms Minister Singha Durbar Padma Aryal has unveiled the new political and administrative maps of Nepal.


The new map incorporates an additional 335 sq km of land, taking the country’s total area to 147,516 sq km.

“This unilateral action is not based on historical facts and evidence,” exclaimed Indian External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Anurag Srivastava.

“It is contrary to the bilateral understanding to resolve the outstanding boundary issues through diplomatic dialogue,” he added while asking Nepal to refrain from the unjustified cartographic assertion.
